Ausenco’s environmental planning and ecology experts deliver integrated environmental assessment services and permitting and monitoring support to clients across all government and industry sectors.

Our team brings a depth of experience in managing and coordinating environmental permitting and approvals processes. Our process managers are supported by in-house expertise in wildlife, fisheries and aquatics, marine ecology, vegetation, noise, and air quality. You can rely on the diversity of our expertise through all stages of a project’s lifecycle―from conceptual design to approvals, construction, and operations.
